-Mobile service[edit]-

In Europe, the Electronic Communications Committee (ECC) of the European
Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT) has
harmonized part of the L-band (1452-1492 MHz), allowing individual
countries to adopt this spectrum for terrestrial mobile/fixed
communications networks supplemental downlink (MFCN SDL). By means of
carrier aggregation, an LTE-Advanced or UMTS/HSDPA base station could use
this spectrum to provide additional bandwidth for communications from the
